Australian publication Woman’s Day claim the billionaire businessman, 48, has called time on his romance with the 46-year-old pop star over her “extravagant spending” and disagreements over her fly-on-the-wall reality show Mariah’s World.
A source close to the couple are said to have told the publication: “It’s all over.
“James had huge reservations about Mariah’s new reality TV show and the fact that she was willing to expose their lives to the world.”
The magazine also claims that James has “allowed” the singer to keep herextraordinary £8 million engagement ring.
It is also reported that the couple came to blows after Mariah “refused” to attend James’ sister Gretel’s 50th birthday party in Sydney.
The source added: “When she refused to come to Australia for Gretel’s birthday party it created a lot of tension in the family.
“His mum hated to even hear her name mentioned, and James’ tight circle of friends never really thought they would marry.”
Fuelling the speculation, Mariah has mysteriously cancelled part of her current Sweet Sweet Fantasy tour – including shows in Brazil, Argentina and Chile across October/November.
A statement from Mariah said: “To all of my lambs in South America, I am devastated that a portion of this tour had to be cancelled.
“Thank you for all of the excitement and love—I hope to see you soon, my darlings!”
James and Mariah got engaged in January after a whirlwind romance.
The former happy couple were together less than a year before making the commitment to marry.
Mariah previously married America’s Got Talent host Nick Cannon in 2008 after just six weeks of dating.
Despite the 10 year age gap, the couple announced their split in 2014 after “falling out of love.”
